KUOW'S MISSION IS TO CREATE A MORE INFORMED PUBLIC, ONE CHALLENGED AND INVIGORATED BY A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING AND APPRECIATION OF EVENTS, IDEAS AND CULTURES.

PRESIDENT + CEO

The global economic downturn and its impact on our lives and communities dominated the news this year. Hundreds of hours of local, regional, national and international economic features were aired on KUOW. Some of the most comprehensive reporting was heard on Marketplace morning and evening reports, and on Planet Money, a new collaboration between This American Life and NPR News. Public radio is known for in-depth, fact-based news and its coverage of the crisis attracted many new listeners. At a time when news and information seekers are increasingly fragmented, the KUOW audience continues to grow. The economic disruption affected KUOW as well. The stock market's steepest decline took place during the fall pledge drive. Thanks to you, however, both fall and spring drive goals were met. Many donors increased their contribution over prior years and commented that KUOW's service was more valuable than ever. Listener support was at an all-time high in fiscal year 2009. However, underwriting support, from businesses and non-profit organizations, was down and may take some time to recover. KUOW entered fiscal year 2010 with a solid financial footing. We anticipate no reduction of the broadcast and online program services you count on. The fate of professional journalism is of considerable interest as many newspapers reduce newsroom staff and provide content on digital delivery channels. Although not a new topic of discussion, it was spurred locally by the closure of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (P .I.). Some opinion leaders cite non-profit public radio news as a model for all professional journalism. KUOW, KPLU and KCTS Channel 9, together with former P .I. journalists and other interested parties, are exploring possible collaborations designed to sustain local news. While committed to the long-term viability of broadcast radio, National Public Radio is investing considerable resources in new digital platforms as a strategy to deliver more public service to more Americans. NPR's Website, NPR.org has become a new national newspaper. The digital expansion is championed by new leadership at NPR. President Vivian Schiller and Vice President Kinsey Wilson came to public radio from the New York Times and USA Today respectively. From all of us at KUOW, many thanks for your ongoing support of professional journalism!

Frank Woodruff Chair Allan Steinman Vice Chair Judith Endejan Secretary Jon Eastlake Treasurer Norm Arkans--Ex officio Katharine Barrett Christine Deavel Nelson Dong Stephanie Ellis-Smith Joan Enticknap Arif Gursel Chris Higashi Linda Kennedy Dennis Kenny Maryfrances Lignana Jennifer O'Connor Scott Poepping Susan Ward Potts Wayne Roth--Ex officio Veronica Smith David Valdez Thank you to our friends Lee Daneker, Robert Flennaugh II, Alden Garrett, Steven Gilbert, Jany Jacob, and Pauline Reiter (Past President) who concluded their service as KUOW Puget Sound Public Radio board members in 2008.

KUOW serves as a strong, reliable resource for news and is one of the most listened to stations in the Puget Sound region. Despite the economic climate over the past year we continued to invest in many additional services: adding reporter positions, locally debuting Public Insight Journalism, upgrading the KUOW archives and more. All of this was made possible through the support of our listeners. We appreciate the generosity of our local community, especially during a year of unique financial challenges. At KUOW, annual contributions from listeners and underwriting support from local businesses and non-profits have always been our two largest sources of revenue. In the past many listeners have expressed an interest in providing a more permanent form of sustained support to the station. In order to provide a vehicle for gifts of this sort, KUOW recently established an endowment fund--designed to provide support for the station in perpetuity--that can accept either lifetime gifts or bequests. For someone interested in making a transformational gift to the station, it may also be possible to establish a named endowment tailored to the desires of the donor. As endowment assets grow, they will enhance KUOW's ability to produce the type of programs our listeners so greatly value. Increasing access to KUOW's services remains a priority, and the station is employing a variety of methods to provide more public radio to more people. KUOW's second service, which we call KUOW2, offers an additional 24 hours of news and information each day--shows such as Fresh Air and Talk of the Nation, as well as a wide range of programming from around the world. If you have a high definition (HD RadioTM) radio, you can listen to KUOW2 at 94.9 FM. You can also hear KUOW2 as an audio stream at KUOW2.org. HD radio broadcasts a digital signal of near-CD quality. And unlike satellite radio, HD radio is available without a monthly subscription fee. When HD service debuted a little more than five years ago, consumers were slow to embrace the technology. This was due as much to a lack of awareness as to the high cost of HD radios. Today, there are more than 100 HD radio receivers to choose from and portable players are available for less than fifty dollars. HD radios are standard on a number of imported cars, and they are optional equipment on many domestic automobiles. You can find more information about HD radio at KUOW.org as well as at hdradio.com. Thank you for listening to and supporting KUOW. Because of you, the station remains on a solid foundation. We look forward to serving you in 2010 and beyond. Frank Woodruff KUOW Puget Sound Public Radio Board Chair

BOARD CHAIR

BEHIND THE SHOW

KUOW produces over 30 hours of local programming each week. KUOW producers and hosts spend their day looking for show ideas, conducting background research and booking guests. Sources for show topics include articles, pitches from media representatives and plenty of research conducted by phone and email. With live programs like Weekday and The Conversation, producers can work right up until air time booking a guest or confirming facts.

LOCAL PROGRAMS

WEEKDAY Senior Host: Steve Scher Talk Show Producers: Katy Sewall and Sage Van Wing

Weekday is KUOW's daily signature public affairs program; a program where every topic is on the table. Monday through Friday, Weekday engages the curious and encourages an understanding of local and national issues. Weekday's coverage of the political arenas--local, regional and national--and interviews with leaders such as presidential candidates Senators Barack Obama and John McCain* prompted listeners to ask and act. Weekday also brought the variety and complexity of the world to our region with continued coverage and discussion of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and by revealing the issues facing veterans returning home. Interviews with regular and returning guests King County Executive Ron Sims, Governor Chris Gregoire and Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels enabled listeners to develop their opinions on policies, and helped shape how they participated in the political process. Last year, Weekday provided in-depth, ongoing coverage of the local and national political campaigns, the economic crisis, the healthcare debate and green technology.

THE CONVERSATION Senior Host: Ross Reynolds Talk Show Producer: David Hyde Producer: Jenny Asarnow

The Conversation, KUOW's daily call-in talk show, continued to provide listeners with a forum for lively public debate and thoughtful discourse. This year the program moved to a magazine format which gave listeners a wider coverage of a greater number of issues and events. In-depth political coverage focused on the presidential race between Senators John McCain and Barack Obama, and featured interviews with candidates including Dave Reichert and Darcy Burner in the battle for the 8th Congressional District. Philosopher Peter Singer and other guests spoke about solving poverty. New York University media guru Jay Rosen, On the Media's Bob Garfield, Wired magazine's Chris Anderson and other guests spoke about the future of the news business following the demise of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

KUOW PRESENTS

Managing Editor: Megan Sukys Producers: Elizabeth Austen, Dave Beck, Jeremy Richards, Sarah Waller, Jeannie Yandel

"KUOW provides about 90 percent of my political and cultural information including music, art, theater and events. KUOW allows me to make informed voting decisions and to discuss candidates and issues. We are all so busy with our commitments, yet listening to KUOW through the day enables me to stay in touch and informed about Seattle, King County and the world. Instead of TV, I look forward to Wiretap, This American Life and LA Theater Works for entertainment. Thank you all!" --Peter

KUOW Presents is a continuation of the local radio innovation that began with the forerunner to this program, Sound Focus. This past year, producers reached into communities throughout the Northwest to find stories that reflect the diversity, creativity and passion of this region. As a result listeners heard chronicles that were surprising, engaging and enduring. Stories introduced listeners to the primal athleticism of the urban sport called Parkour and a WWII veteran who had recently returned a kamikaze flag to Japan. Listeners traveled to the one-square-inch of silence in the Hoh Rain Forest and then to the deep recesses of Seattle's Municipal Archives where a single slip of paper changed lives. Regular interviews with music, art, poetry, entertainment, food and literary commentators kept listeners in touch with a multitude of enriching local experiences. Portions of KUOW Presents are archived at KUOW.org.

SPEAKERS' FORUM Producer: Sara Lerner

The Puget Sound region is a favorite destination for prominent academic, literary and political figures. KUOW's Speakers' Forum broadcasts lectures and discussions recorded throughout the region from these luminaries. This year speakers included astrophysicist and popular NOVA scienceNOW host, Neil deGrasse Tyson and journalist and scholar Michael Pollan. Author and frequent public radio contributor David Sedaris shared his struggles to quit smoking while living in Tokyo, and New York Times columnist and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman spoke of his views on the state of the economy. Julia Child Award winner Betty Fussell told the story of beef cattle in the U.S. from the days of early settlers and cow towns to the industrial feedlots and wood­paneled steakhouses of today. Speakers' Forum programs are archived at KUOW.org.

KUOW NEWSROOM

KUOW reporters bring you local and regional news reports daily, and special features throughout the year. You'll also hear stories from KUOW reporters on national programs, including Morning Edition and Marketplace. A typical day for a KUOW reporter includes reading articles and checking wire services before attending a morning editorial meeting. Reporters then spend the day conducting interviews and writing their stories. In addition to daily stories, KUOW reporters work on feature stories, which can take several days or weeks to complete.

THE SWING YEARS AND BEYOND Host: Amanda Wilde

Featuring popular music of the 1920s to the 1950s, The Swing Years and Beyond is KUOW's longest running program and an audience favorite. For over 44 years listeners have spent their Saturday nights listening to familiar favorites and discovering lesser known gems from a mix of jazz, swing, show tunes and blues. This year, The Swing Years featured a special interview "Swing Baby, Swing: Norma Miller. Miller, who grew " up in the streets of Harlem in the 1930s, spoke about her life as a dancer, choreographer, comedienne, author and songwriter. In a regular monthly segment on Sound Focus and KUOW Presents, Wilde provided the unknown history behind commonly known songs in Sounds Familiar. Playlists can be found at KUOW.org/swing_years.php.

KUOW PUGET SOUND PUBLIC RADIO NEWS

KUOW NEWS

News Director: Guy Nelson Senior Editor: Jim Gates

KUOW's newsroom continued to distinguish itself in the quality and depth of its news and feature reporting--covering the most important local and national stories affecting our region. Reporters Ruby de Luna, Phyllis Fletcher, Liz Jones, Amy Radil, John Ryan, Marcie Sillman and Deborah Wang, and announcer/reporters Jamala Henderson, Patricia Murphy and Derek Wang spend each day researching, conducting interviews, writing and producing their reports. Last year's reports included: "Where Do Republicans Go from Here?" a look at the future of the Republican party in Washington State; , "Undocumented Workers" their movement to Vancouver, Canada; "School Closures" , , children share their apprehensions of leaving their schools; and "Minority Mortgages, " a look at how some in these groups have fared in a downturn market. In addition to daily reporting, KUOW news staff also work on feature stories and series which can take several days or weeks to complete. Last year, features included: "Seattle Post-Intelligencer: Turning the Page" a review of the 146 year history of the , paper and the people behind the institution; "Sweet Earth: Lessons from the Land" a , look at the growing movement to eat locally; and "The State of Execution" a three-part , series examining the death penalty in Washington State.

NORTHWEST NEWS NETWORK (N3)

In FY09, the Northwest News Network (N3) entered into its fifth year and continued to be a model of collaboration and producer of award-winning** news reports. N3 is supported financially by KUOW and eight other public broadcast organizations operating a total of 61 stations throughout Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Coverage throughout the Northwest is provided by N3's statehouse bureaus in Olympia, WA, and Salem, OR, news bureaus in the Tri-Cities and Coeur d' Alene, ID, and a roving correspondent. As a public radio cooperative, N3 not only provides stations with content, but allows partner stations to share their work within the region. This year, editors Cathy Duchamp and Colin Fogarty; and correspondents Tom Banse, Austin Jenkins, Anna King, Chris Lehman and Doug Nadvornick produced a significant number of news reports and features from the regional front, allowing partner stations to focus on events and activities within their local communities. This year reports from N3 bureaus provided expanded public service to over 1.4 million*** listeners each week.

"Listening to KUOW makes me smart. Or...at least makes me feel smart...and that's a good thing! Thank you KUOW!" --Anita

THE PUBLIC INSIGHT NETWORK Public Insight Journalism Analyst: Carolyn Adolph

We've often heard about the increasing role the public is playing in journalism today. This year KUOW began a partnership with Minnesota Public Radio to bring their Public Insight Network (PIN) to our region. The PIN is a network of people--individuals who have experience and expertise that can add insight and substance to KUOW's news and program coverage. In this first year, over 700 people from all walks of life, from every part of the region, and from many fields of expertise joined the PIN to share their knowledge. By connecting KUOW reporters and producers with PIN members, KUOW is able to find fresh insights and perspectives, discover new stories that have not been reported and find people who can help tell the stories we are following. PIN information is online at kuow.org/publicinsight/.

* 1999 McCain interview and 2006 Obama interview were rebroadcasted in August 2008. ** See "2008­2009 Awards" section of this report. *** Arbitron Sp, F '08.

KUOW PROGRAM VENTURE FUND

The Puget Sound Region: In depth and in focus. The KUOW Program Venture Fund (PVF) provides special support for staff and independent producers to develop new programming focused on the Puget Sound region. The PVF accepts project proposals from producers and reporters three times per year. Since its inception the PVF has funded over 20 projects which have been feature reports, documentaries or short audio pieces. The KUOW Program Venture Fund was initiated in 2003 by a key gift from Paul and Laurie Ahern, long-time friends to KUOW.

PUBLIC SERVICE

An important KUOW goal is to expand public service through listener growth, significant local programming and the use of multiple channels. KUOW continues to invest in providing more quality public radio programming to more listeners in our region in a multitude of ways.

OTHER SERVICES

KUOW'S SECOND SERVICE--KUOW2

KUOW's second service, KUOW2 is a compliment to programming heard on KUOW 94.9 FM, and continued to provide expanded program options for greater Tacoma, the South Sound, HD RadioTM and online listeners. National favorites such as The Diane Rehm Show, Talk of the Nation and Science Friday broadcast live and allowed listeners in the Puget Sound region to participate in national discussions on issues of the day. KUOW2's schedule of comprehensive international news provided insight and a diversity of viewpoints on events happening throughout the world such as conflicts in Africa and the Middle East and the global recession and recovery efforts. International politics and human interest stories helped expand an understanding of people and their cultures. Nearly all of KUOW2's international programming is exclusive to listeners in the region such as: News from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Asia Pacific (Radio Australia) and World Radio Network (reports from broadcasters in Russia, The Czech Republic, Korea, Romania, Africa, Sweden, the Netherlands and China). KUOW2 is heard at KUOW 94.9 HD as HD Channel 2 and online as a live stream at KUOW2.org. Listeners in Tacoma and the South Sound can hear KUOW2 at 91.7 FM.

THE WEEKDAY HIGH SCHOOL INTERNSHIP PROGRAM Managing Editor: Nathan Friend

Weekday High is KUOW's summer high school internship program. Since its inception in 2004, over 30 students have spent a part of their summer in the KUOW studios learning the fundamentals of public radio. In the 2008 session, six high school students participated in hands-on workshops for interviewing, recording, voicing and editing. Interns produced their own radio stories based on the theme of the 2008 session: activism. The culmination of their work was the podcasts they hosted and produced which were aired on Weekday and were highlighted on KUOW.org. An audio archive of the work done by Weekday High interns can be found at: kuow.org/weekdayhigh.

KUOW.ORG + KUOW2.ORG Director, Online Services: Jenna Montgomery Web Producers: Morgen Nilsson and Carmen Santos

In FY09, KUOW.org averaged 159,660 unique visits and 322,750 page views each month, and over 2,500 news stories and programs were added to KUOW's rich online audio archives. Multi-media support was provided for news specials such as Old Masters, Our Time: Teens and Politics, and Seattle Post­Intelligencer: Turning the Page. Two new innovative tools were launched: the Public Insight Network (PIN) and the Public Radio Player. The PIN invites individuals in the community to share their expertise for reporter research. The Public Radio Player is an application that streams KUOW and lists its schedule on the iPhone and iPod touchTM mobile devices. Newly revamped RSS feeds promote shows ahead of broadcast and enable users to subscribe to feeds via email. KUOW.org and KUOW's second service KUOW2.org provide online streaming of 94.9 FM and 91.7 FM broadcasts, archived audio, podcasts, program information and schedule, and online pledging. Continued support in FY09 from the Otto Haas Charitable Trust enabled KUOW to enrich the content and program support of KUOW.org.

In FY09, KUOW invested approximately one third of the organization's annual programming budget into acquiring high quality public radio programming from national and international producers and distributors. KUOW continued to be the exclusive provider of the majority of national and international public radio programs available to listeners in our region. On KUOW 94.9 FM, over 30 hours of locally produced content was coupled with a variety of acquired programming to provide thousands of hours of news, information and cultural programming to the Puget Sound region. This programming also provided KUOW listeners with special coverage of important events such as the 2008 national elections, the continuing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the global economic crisis and the national housing market collapse. KUOW continued its affiliation with National Public Radio (NPR), producer of two KUOW anchor programs, Morning Edition and All Things Considered, as well as popular weekend programs, Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! and Car Talk. Distributor Public Radio International (PRI) contributed to the schedule with To the Point, The World and This American Life, as did American Public Media (APM) with Marketplace and A Prairie Home Companion. Additionally, KUOW featured programming and news broadcasts from the renowned British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).

A key component of KUOW's mission is to expose our community to diverse, thought-provoking ideas, people and experiences. Providing these sponsorships to a wide assortment of cultural, artistic and community events is just one of the ways KUOW endeavors to satisfy its mission.
